What We Love

  • No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.
  • The teal ocean and breezy palms on the white sand of Flamingos Beach. Swoon-worthy.
  • RiuLand, where kiddos can get immersed in arts and crafts while you enjoy some sand 'n surf therapy.
  • Sipping on cocktails and watching the crazy beautiful pink sunsets over the water.
  • The spa where you can descend into relaxing massages & thalassotherapy, a seawater treatment.
  • The in-pool loungers where you can lounge, swim around a bit, then return to work on your tan.

Things to Know

  • It's just 8 miles away from the airport. Blink, and you'll be there.
  • Don't miss horseback riding in the Sierra Madres or swimming with the dolphins in Banderas Bay.
  • There's an 18-hole, championship golf course that a coconut's throw away.
  • Check out the bodyboarding, windsurfing, catamarans and more. Dive in.
  • On land, there's volleyball, billiards and for the flexible/bendy types, there's gymnastics.
True Beach Lovers, this resort on the Riviera Nayarit is where you can revel in an everything-you-want dream escape. Sheltered by the Sierra Madres, it's a beachy haven that's brimming with excitement: unlimited slushy drinks and epic cuisine, an impressive spa, water sports out the wazoo and so much more. You're long overdue for treating yourself.

    Can’t wait to return once safe to travel

    We stayed for 11 nights November 2019 we loved every single second from the minute we walked through the doors. We found the food and drinks amazing and loved to whole ambience. We met some great people. We were planning to return November 2020 but we’ll see with the lockdown. As soon as it’s safe to do so well be back to say hello to everyone again. Until then stay safe x

    Felt pampered

    Love this place, a little older feel, not as many kids. Great service, pretty good food. The beach was nice, walked to Nayarit a couple times. Which might be a bit scary for some people as its off the beaten path.

    Nice place but don’t go for the food.

    Beautiful place. The staff and everyone who works there are very helpful and are doing everything they can to make your stay a pleasant experience, but the food was just so so. We have stayed in other Palace and the food has been excellent.

    Great drinks a the sports bar

    Four of us were there for a week in February, before COVID-19. Wonderful scenery and friendly staff. We enjoyed the sports bar everyday because of a drink they made for us ladies called the Coronado. Does anyone know how this was made or what the greenish color liquor was? It was almost a Tequila Sunrise with a cool twist. Thank you for your help in solving this mystery.
